  • The top fits well, and ergonomic cut ensures wide range of movement and a feeling that you aren’t even wearing a jacket.
  • IR's color selection is also cool. Besides the typical dry top colors they have Urban camo.
  • Great option for people with latex sensitivities or just looking for some more comfortable than latex.
  • Lightweight material is tough enough for what you throw at it and heavy enough for the coldest weather.
  • Available in both Mens’s and Womens’s
